As a board member of Postpartum Progress Inc, I wrote about our first annual fundraiser, “Climb Out of the Darkness” last week. At that time and in this economy, $25,000 seemed to be a lofty goal… even with lots of participation and many $10 donations… all of which are so welcome.
Well, I am completely exhilarated to tell you we are over our initial goal of $25,000 and have set a new goal of $35,000. We still have 7 days left and many of you are just starting to create your own fundraising pages! It’s a blast to go on the site each day and see all the beaming new faces, moms with their babies, moms with their families, and amazing Warrior Moms PERIOD who want to be a part of this unique event!
It is not too late to join us! My climb will be held in Berne, NY in the Helderberg Mountains (right behind my home) on Saturday, June 22 at 1 PM. If you are interested in joining this hike, please contact me for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or you might want to set up your OWN climb or fundraising page – you can do that by clicking here.
Donations of any amount are welcome and can be made to any of the listed participants’ hikes. But even if money is scarce, come on out and hike with us anyway. If you’re a Warrior Mom, or someone who supports one, you’re automatically included.
There are presently over 40 different climbs and hikes (of varying difficulty thank heavens!) listed in many states and several countries so you can find one near you!!
And if you’d like to create a fundraising page representing your own non-profit, agency, hospital, program or practice, just post your logo as the picture and let everyone know you support the work of Katherine Stone and Postpartum Progress.
Looking forward to participating with you during the world’s first multinational, simultaneous event to raise awareness of PMAD’s and support a resource near and dear to us all!
